"The Ford Festival" (1951)




A weekly variety show that initially tied together the performances with a storyline. (that concept was dropped in favor of straight variety after only a few months).
This is the fourth broadcast from April 26, 1951 and the "storyline" is the 2000th birthday of Paris. Among James Melton's guests are Joan Bennett and Victor Borge.

James Melton had a wonderful warm, energetic personality and was a very talented tenor. I enjoy his style of singing very much.
